When and why did you open Montgomery Arts Academy?
I opened Montgomery Arts Academy in August 2016. To have a music academy has always been my dream. As a former public school choral/music teacher, I was never granted the opportunity to perform at my highest potential. I knew that God had something better.
What are Montgomery Arts Academy’s primary offerings?
Montgomery Arts Academy primary services are: music instructions all ages in piano, voice, guitar, drums as well as brass and woodwind instruments; Kidz Rock Band for ages 4-7; kids’ music camps; and tutorial programs and programs for homeschool families.
What do you love about music?
Music is a universal language that speaks to the inner being of every living creature.
What’s your favorite thing about your work?
Having the freedom to perform at my highest potential on any given day; to be creative in serving the community; and to meet and collaborate with new people.
Recent milestones and awards?
I am a graduate of Montgomery Leadership’s Torchbearers Class X, and I was awarded “Entrepreneur of the Year” by Beta Nu Omega of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.
What are your interests outside of Montgomery Music Academy?
I love serving the community as a volunteer through Junior League of Montgomery and Beta Nu Omega
of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. I am also a PassionPreneur Coach and speaker, teaching women how to build a business based on their passions with a growing bottom line. I am also an inspirational speaker.
